Me game PC SETUP. "still need some help ;P"

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I am planning too buy a PC in a couple o weeks,
First time i build one so i ofc gonna ask some help wink.gif

Me price is aprox 1500 Euro, Proberly aprox 2000 dollar.


SETUP:

Case Aerocool XPredator Evil Black Edition Aprox 120 Euro
Motherboard ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 -=Rev.3.0=- aprox 160 euro
CPU Intel® Core™ i7-2600K Aprox 280 Euro
Processor cooling Corsair H100 Aprox 100 euro
Graphics card Asus Radeon 6950 aprox 290 euro
HDD Western Digital WD20EARS 2TB Aprox 120 euro
Feeding supply Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2 aprox 112 euro
RAM Corsair 16 GB DDR3-1600 Quad-Kit aprox 97 euro

aprox 1279 euro in total.


I was also wondering if this has WIFI included?
Or is that another card?
I am also new on overclocking, Since i buy a Liquid cooler and a 2600K you can be sure i gonna give it a try, I heard it could be easly OCd too 4.5-5 ghz ? biggrin.gif

Anyways i think this should get the job done?

Hope i can get some help biggrin.gif

Also looking for an Screen for aprox 200-350 euro i guess, 22+ inch for sure. HDMI ofcourse!

This is a Prebuilt PC? You could get something much better spending less (i.e get a 2500k instead of a 2600k for gaming it won't change "much") what site would you buy it from?

Personally I'd swap the P67 board for a Z68 one, the Sabertooth 'Thermal Armor' doesn't do too much for the actual performance of the board.

Also does that case definitely support a dual rad? I can't see anything in the description saying it does (and it's ugly as hell IMO), personally I'd go for a CM Storm case or equivalent.

As for the Wi-Fi issue, as far as I'm aware all modern motherboards will have at least some Wi-Fi chip included.

Also I wouldn't say you'd need 16GB of RAM unless you are using Virtual Machines.

I think this would do the job much better for roughly the same price:

700

As for the monitor I can't really comment as my monitor is 3 years old biggrin.gif

Hope this helped thumb.gif

Does the P67 and Z68 have any diffrence anyway?

Btw is the SSD for the booting system or?

Btw sure the Nvidia card is better?
The memory is alr a big piece lower "ATI had an 3GB"

Btw in those 2 shops they dont have an Stormtrooper.
Thats why i thought the predator was the best choice tongue.gif


I went too me webstores and they said WITHOUT THE CASE "Since they dont sell that one" it was 1264 Euro.
With case its proberly the same as me previous model, Ofcourse i got an SSD now of 120gb "it was such a small diffrence in Euro from 60 too 120"
and graphics card is also a bit more pricey now.


I do mis a window in the case you gave me tongue.gif

The differences between P67 and Z68 are explained and discussed in this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1196966/p67-vs-z68

As for the SSD, yes I included that to be a boot/ program drive so you have fast loading times, then the HDD for storage.

As far as I am aware the GTX 570 performs better in games despite the 6950 having some better tech-specs, however the 6950 can be flashed to upgrade it to a 6970, which in many cases beats the 570. In the end it is your choice, personally I'm an Nvidia fanboy so I'd say go for the 570 or wait for Kepler, but the AMD equivalents also offer great performance.

The Predator looks like a reasonable case, however because of the somewhat interesting colour scheme I think the inside would look tacky unless you did a solely orange and black build. But again, as long as you pick a reasonably sized case you'll be fine, it's all down to personal preference. I only chose the CM Storm Trooper because the price and aesthetics are very similar to the Predator, there are many other great cases for the same price, loads of which have a side window.

If you give me the links to the sites you are anticipating buying from then I could give you better recommendations or if you tell me where you're from I can try to recommend a good site to buy from.

Ty for all you're help so far!

Since this is a Graphics card of 300 euro i was thinking, isnt it better if i buy 2 graphics card of 150-200 euro instead of 1 300 Euro one?


Also the site i prefer are:
http://www.alternate.be/html/highlights.html?tn=HARDWARE&l1=&hgid=3905&tgid=3975
http://forcom.be/ "Goto the side bar with Componenten - onderdelen for more info"


I would also not mind of buying an Case of Ebay,

I gotta say the Storm trooper is NICE, But i would love one with side window biggrin.gif
Just too have a nice look inside biggrin.gif

Update:
I think this is also an great Case ?

COOLER MASTER HAF X
post #9 of 41
I personally have the HAF-X and it is excellent, the build quality is brilliant and it keeps everything very cool whilst being very quiet. It is a big case however but I highly recommend it, it even has a side window AND 200mm fan, the best of both worlds.

As for the graphics card I can only recommend Nvidia as I'm not too familiar with the AMD offerings. In the case of Nvidia I'd only suggest going for two cards if you can get two 560 Ti's, anything much lower than that and you'd be better off with a single more powerful card.
